Whether in Pennsylvania or elsewhere, the Security Systems In Pennsylvania can only be as good as the follow up provided after the alarm has been raised. Alarm systems are the hardware devices at the protected location that have been set up to detect certain known threats to life, limb and property. It doesn’t matter to the equipment if it is there to prevent burglaries, protect workers from industrial accidents or detect fires before they get out of control. Threat sensors and/or cameras are positioned around the premises and, when triggered, relay that fact to a control panel (usually located on the premises).


The control panel can be programmed for when to switch on and when to switch off but it is capable of doing much more that just that. Obviously, the panel will do the necessary to sound off whatever type of warning sound is attached to it; but a good panel will recognize that there may be no one around to hear the warning, let alone do anything about it. To be really effective, the information that a threat has been detected has to be passed on to a place where action can be instigated.

Firms such as Security Systems Pennsylvania recognize this and, as well as selling you only the hardware, they also provide, as it were, the “after sales service” in the form of their monitoring centers that are fully staffed with qualified security personnel on a 24/7 basis. Once your sensors have sensed something and relayed the information to your control panel, the news of the event is automatically transferred to this security center where it will be assessed and a decision will be made as to what action to take. For additional security, there is no longer a need to notify the center by a fixed, landline connection – cellular connections or the internet can now be used.

For the best security system for your needs, you should check out not only the hardware but also the supplier’s monitoring arrangements. Do they do nothing more than give you a message that you have an emergency situation to sort out? Better if they provide more assistance than that; do they automatically notify police and fire departments when applicable? Do they have any mobile staff that they can send to your assistance? Obviously, the more help they provide; the better it is for you.
